This month, Sephora sent out two variations of the monthly box: one for subscribers will oily skin and one for subscribers with normal-to-dry skin. I received the box geared for oily skin.
Nest Fragrance in Citrine ($1.60): This is a great summer scent blended with lotus flower, freesia, citrus and precious woods. I like it but not as well as I like Nest’s Indigo (that scent is amazing!)
Ouai Wave Spray ($8.84): I am officially stocked up on wave and texture sprays! This stuff isn’t bad but it’s not incredible. I think I just don’t have the right hair type to pull off the beach waves. I can do straight and I can do big bouncy curls. But nothing I ever try gives me those cool, tousled waves.
Beautyblender Blotterazzi ($10): I saw this item in the spoilers and I cannot tell you how excited I got. Anything from Beautyblender is amazing in my opinion and this is no exception. This will soak up oil andd help to control shine. It will also help to smooth cracks and cakiness during the day. Plus, Sephora included a packet of cleanser!
First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay ($5.11): This is a foaming gel cleasner that use botanicals and red clay to remove oil and dirt. It definitely removes excess oil without leaving my skin feeling tight or dry. This is a great find and I may pick this up in a full size.
Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer ($9.75): You can never go wrong with Smashbox primers. I love their Photo Finish primers and this version is just as great. It reminds me of the Benefit Porefessionals primer. It glides on so smoothly and really does create a soft base for your foundation. It’s not cakey or heavy but it’s also not greasy like a lot of primers I have tried.
Too Face Soleil Matte Bronzer in Chocolate ($6.86): This bronzer is made with cocoa powder for a natural glow. I love the matte finish and even though this is a medium to dark shade, it’s actually subtle enough for me to wear.
Verdict: The total value of this box is $42.16 which is impressive. Overall, I really enjoyed this box. With the exception of the texture spray, I will use everything in the box so I’m really happy with it!
